What You Can Expect

Sydney Harbour Tour by Helicopter

Gorgeous Sydney Harbour

Starting with convenient pickup from your centrally located Sydney hotel, head to the helipad where you meet your pilot. Receive a safety briefing and helicopter orientation, then have time to snap photos in front of your whirlybird before boarding. After getting comfortable in your seats and putting on the provided headset, listen to your pilot’s commentary as your helicopter lifts up into the sky.

Hover above landmark sights such as Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, and Fort Denison while hearing informative commentary provided by your pilot. You might spy some of the animals in the Taronga Zoo, located on the shores of Sydney Harbour. Marvel at the expanse of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Hyde Park and the city skyline, then zip over to the coast for a look at famous surf beaches such as Bondi Beach, Manly and Coogee.

Your expert pilot provides a safe flight and fascinating stories, which gives you a greater understanding of this vibrant Australian city.

This is a must do for anyone visiting Sydney. My wife and I did this tour on our 25th wedding anniversary and it made it a day we will never forget. The transfers to/from your hotel are superb and then the actual flight is breathtaking. I would highly recommend buying the DVD recording of your flight as well, you won't regret it.
